Saw a guy pay $925 for guages and installation

I went buy a big name 4 X 4 place last night to pick up some carrier bearing spacers and the guy in front of me bought EGT, Trans and Boost guage. I overheard the chages of 65 bucks for the 3 hole pillar pod, 325 for labor and 535 for the 3 guages. That just seems real high to me. The guy just ask for budget line guages and he whipped out the visa card. I was planning on spending around 325 for my guages and installing them myself. I did my Buick Grand national and it took me about 2 hours, What is a fair price to pay for labor?

thats a lot of money, I paid 300 all together for my gauges and pillar and had them all installed in three hours, i know it will be different in a 6.0 but I wouldnt think you would have a problem doing them yourself
